Call for Bids: Organizing the 2026 ICAP

The IAAP Board of Directors is requesting proposals to select a host for ICAP 2026. Once selected, It is then the responsibility of the host (and its scientific community) to organize the Congress - including developing the program, issuing calls for participation, publicizing the Congress, arranging accommodation, arranging special programming, and usually arranging additional funding through grants, sponsorship, and the like.

Call for Election of Board of Directors, Members-At-Large

New deadline to submit nominations for Members-at-Large: extended until the 15th of June 2018.

Due to the changes in the duration of terms for BoD members approved in Yokohama in 2016, the number of Member-at-Large positions that will become vacant at the end of the Montreal ICAP is larger than usual and, conversely, more nominations than usual are needed to fill those positions. The number of nominations received so far is comparable to the numbers received for the 2014 and the 2010 elections. However, in the absence of a larger number of nominations for Members-at-Large for the 2018 elections, the odds are that several positions for Member-at-Large will remain vacant.
